About Linda Kremin
We hike or ride bike whenever we get a chance. Landscaping and gardening occupy a lot of our time. We have over 50 organic blueberry plants and LOTS of strawberries. Whenever we get more time off, we explore other parts of Oregon & Washington. We have always loved the northwest.
Linda Kremin purchased this Lodge in 1976
Why Linda Kremin chose Hood River County
We have lived in the Gorge most of our lives. The lodge location has so much to offer . . . the view is awesome, there are two great hiking trails within one or two miles, if we need something we are just 3.5 miles from town, less ambient light makes for a great place to observe the stars at night, plus the peace and quiet can't be beat. The Columbia Gorge is rich with wildlife, we presently have a doe & two fawns and a large herd of turkeys that visit daily. Natural beauty abounds, go hiking, camping, kayaking, skiing, exploring - all types of adventure. We bought our property in '76 and built a large log home taking full advantage of our mountain view. We have been offering our lodge to guests for over 28 years. We love this area and enjoy helping our guests locate the many treasures we have found in the gorge.
What makes this Lodge unique
Peace and Quiet. People come from all over for the silence, the nearby trails, the superb mountain view, the awesome night sky and a variety of wildlife. We have many wild turkeys out the kitchen window each morning. And it is not unusual to see a deer and fawn ambling through. We feel pretty lucky.

This lodge was absolutely beautiful. We filled the house with 20 women for a fun filled Leadership Weekend for Trout Unlimited. I'd highly recommend the location for anyone who is trying to host a large group leadership event. The parking was a little iffy and the house was a little loud but when you have 20 people staying what would you expect? I'll definitely be renting the lodge again next year.
Thank you, Heather. We love to fill the Lodge with groups who know how to enjoy life. Hopefully, next time you come, I can be here and get to meet fellow fly-fisher women. We are an eclectic group, indeed! I look forward to welcoming you all home next year. . . Sorry if the parking got confusing. There are parking spaces for about 25 vehicles on our property. A problem can occur when everyone wants their vehicle right in front of the lodge, rather than walk 100 feet. I will put out new signage to try to help that issue.
Very helpful & friendly host, lodge worked well
The host and owner is very helpful and responds quickly to any questions. I really appreciated that. The house was great for our needs. It is an older lodge, but had good communal gathering space, as well as lots of space in the kitchen, for our group of 15. The VRBO description says this lodge is 21,912 square feet, I think that must be a misprint. The interior of the lodge is large, though- (maybe around 6000 square feet?) fine for our 15 people, with more than enough beds for everyone. One note if you've never been here: It is a little tricky finding the driveway to the lodge in the dark, but there are signs, you just have to be looking for them. No snow at the lodge when we were renting, so the steep driveway presented no problems for us.
Our log home was build in '75, with many upgrades since. It is furnished with lots of antiques and artifacts. We keep it clean, comfortable and highly functional for large groups. Not sure about the description but the lodge measures 40 ft x 32 ft and has three levels. That is about 3840 sq. ft. We serve a lot of large groups all times of year. We fill with skiiers, snowboarders in the winter who usually have the AWD vehicles Oregon roads require. We get a lot of returning guests each year who love the place.
Family Chirstmas and 50th Wedding Anniversary
The lodge met all of our requirements - we had plenty of room for everyone and plenty of room for 5 young kids to play. The beds were very good, however the sofas need some updating/cushions. We would have had an outstanding time but the weather did not cooperate. We had only one 4 wheel drive vehicle of the 4 and could not make it up to the lodge to unload or load. Linda was very helpfull in shuttling us from our cars on the road up to the lodge. There was little flexibility in activities since we were basically tied to the lodge for the 3 days. Weather was the main issue and not the lodge itself.
Your family hit a rather difficult cold snap for December. Our website suggests the winter weather can be sunny and warm but can also shift to difficult driving conditions. AWD vehicles should always be rented during winter months in the Northwest. If you get a chance to return, let me know in advance and I can arrange a discount so you can experience the thrill of of warmer weather in the Northwest.
Nice, large house for a group!
Everything was a great and our group wants to return in the summer when the outside deck could be utilized.
Thank you for your note. Spring thru Fall are definitely more fun on the large deck. Many guests spread sleeping bags or hammocks for great views of the mountain under moonlight during warmer times. However, the gas fire-pit is always there on the covered end of the deck to make outdoor a little more enjoyable even in the winter. We would love to welcome you back.
Eleven of my family spent a most memorable Thanksgiving at Panorama Lodge.
This lodge was so perfect for a family...many rooms and a wonderfully stocked kitchen for our Thanksgiving meal. We spent much time in the cozy living and dining area playing games and
enjoying the awesome view of Mt. Hood and the orchards below. The decks were equally cozy
with an outdoor fire to enjoy. We are outdoor people and enjoyed the many walks around and
found it a great location to go on other hikes.
The many artifacts in the spacious living area was so interesting,
The bathrooms and bedrooms were well eqipped and Linda the owner was very accommodating and appreciated her being available for questions.
This is a perfect retreat!!
I enjoyed meeting JoAnne and her family. It is fun to share our Lodge with people who are so ready for the adventures this area has to offer. We even discovered a Danish connection. Great group. I sure hope you can return some day. Maybe next October for that Birthday Celebration!
Second stay just as enjoyable!
We held our family reunion here for the second year in a row and found it just as charming and comfortable as last year! There were 14 adults, three toddlers and an 8 week old and we used every bit of the space. The large tables and deck seating and the large well-equipped kitchen made for ease of meal preparation for the dinner teams. There are many wonderful hikes within a reasonable drive of Panorama Lodge and in Hood River we had two playgrounds for the toddler outings. Rosauer's and Safeway are great grocery stores not too far away.
The lodge is most content when it can hear the laughter of friends within. I am pleased we could host this family.
